Adding GTF MRO repair capability for 235 parts by 2025

On 21 February 2024, Pratt & Whitney, a business under RTX (NYSE: RTX), announced that it will be ramping up the industrialization of repairs for specific components of Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines at its maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities in Singapore. This facilities include Component Aerospace Singapore, Pratt & Whitney Component Solutions, and Turbine Overhaul Services.

Thus far, these facilities have accomplished repair industrialization for 33 components like seal assemblies, high-pressure compressor stator segments and vanes, and combustion chambers. They aim to complete an additional 25 parts in 2024 and 177 more by 2025.

“The investment and collaboration on repair development and capacity growth within our facilities, not just in Singapore but across our global MRO network, demonstrates our commitment to customers and the GTF fleet,” said Shangari Meleschi, vice president, Aftermarket Operations – Asia Pacific and Türkiye at Pratt & Whitney. “In addition to enhancing engine MRO efficiency, we are increasing the capabilities and productivity of our technicians and providing new opportunities for them to expand their skillset.”

Pratt & Whitney’s industrialization efforts have enabled the three repair facilities in Singapore to take on certain tasks that were traditionally handled at Eagle Services Asia, due to their proximity to the Singapore engine center. By capitalizing on this synergy, Pratt & Whitney plans to expand repair services pioneered in Singapore throughout the GTF MRO network. In the region, Pratt & Whitney currently serves 30 GTF customers with more than 600 GTF-powered aircraft.
